I'm in the land of "do something" right now. I'll run on up to Capitol Hill and bring this up. Maybe I'll bring a crying girl along for added effect..... prepare to be boiled constantly. The media, expecially broadcast media, do this on every story. I could tell you a half dozen instances where a situation I knew about first hand was reported on and each was exaggerated beyond belief and several were simply lied about. This is why I quit watching the news over a decade ago. Watching it is a total waste of time. You learn nothing of value. I laugh when people say, "You've got to watch it to stay informed." Yeah right. Informed by lies and distortion. Manipulated by propaganda is more like it.
Expect more and more of these lies with demands that the govt "do something". The press is the govt's running dog.
